This doesn’t happen often.
Arkansas hosts Ole Miss on Saturday with both teams ranked. The Rebels are No. 12 in the Associated Press Poll, and the Razorbacks come in at No. 22.
As pointed out by ESPN Stats and Information on Saturday, this is an occurrence that’s super rare. The last time the two programs met as ranked teams was in the 1970 Sugar Bowl, when Arkansas was No. 3 and Ole Miss was No. 13. The Rebels won 27-22 with a big game from quarterback Archie Manning.
Ole Miss would love a similar result tonight.
